The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Things to do

How to squeeze the sights and attractions of Scotland into a paragraph? Well suffice to say could spend a year here and not exhaust all of Scotland's sights, landscapes and activities.  It's perhaps best known – and visited – for the Great Outdoors, and with good reason: arguably there's no better place in the country for skiing and snowboarding in winter, and mountain biking, hiking and climbing in summer – and all year round its beaches are fabulous and there are wildlife and nature spotting opportunities galore. The great thing is you can combine all this activity and nature with urban and cultural pursuits with two of the UK's buzziest, most elegant cities in Glasgow and Edinburgh, and the rest of the country sports country houses, castles, galleries and gardens and more to tempt touring culture vultures. Consider also taking to the whisky trail: many of Scotland's most iconic and beautifully sited distilleries are open to the public, giving not only the chance to taste but also buy whiskies that are rarely available far from their place of origin.
